Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Start Upon Click On Its Icon

Feb 12, 2010

this morning I got a bad surprise: Firefox doesn't start upon my click on its icon.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:

firefox %u
and got this reply from Ubuntu:
GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times

I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Start 9.1 - How To Get Rid Of Boot Menu

Jan 21, 2010

I downloaded v9.1 and chose to install it within Windows (XP). It seemed to install OK, but when the installation was complete and the machine rebooted, I chose Ubuntu on the boot screen, but all I got was the following message "GNU GRUB v1.97 beta4 - minimal BASH-like editing is supported ... etc" and an input line " sh-grub> " What's happening, and how do I get by this to run Ubuntu? This is my first attempt with Linux, and I can honestly say, I am not too impressed. Now I have a menu on booting asking if I want XP or Ubuntu. Ubuntu wont boot, so, how can I repair or how can I get rid of this boot menu to return my computer to 'as it was' before

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Grub Menu At Start Up?

Jan 24, 2010

Just upgraded to 9.10 on a laptop with dead Vista which I lost when I moved over to UBUNTU some time ago. Never any problems but when fiddling at boot up tonight I accidentally selected to boot up the Vista loader which went into the Vista recovery, and since then the laptop only opens up the Vista Recovery, ie it does not go to the Grub. Any ideas on how I can get to boot UBUNTU again?

Ubuntu :: Nothing Happens When I Right Click On Desktop - No Menu / What To Do?

Oct 13, 2010

Hi, here's hoping you can help me with this minor annoyance. If I right-click on the desktop I get no menu. I recently installed Zorin, a form of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. In the course of 'setting up' my install, I lost this ability and, having made so many changes so rapidly, it's nigh on impossible to figure out what I did that broke my right-click.

Fedora Installation :: 11 Installation X Fails To Start

I'm attempting to install F11 on my desktop. I am unable to complete the installation because the X environment for anaconda fails to start and instead the installation reverts to text mode (in which I cannot seem to to a custom disk partitioning layout for the installation, which I have to be able to do).

Fedora Installation :: Firefox Won't Start From Desktop

Oct 7, 2009

This is a new install of fedora 11 with Neville NewGuy at the controls. I cannot start Firefox from the desktop. Nothing happens (at all, nada, nix, zilch). When I run Firefox in a TermSess as su i get the following warning:

(firefox:3168): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
None of the authentication protocols specified are supported.

and a GUI error box An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for Firefox. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

Followed by these details Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

But Firefox starts OK. I checked the URL specified and then made sure the nfslock service was started but I can't find a gconf service (should I have found it??).
